Force Development

By Drew Lamon Russell

Scifi / Adventure

Scene I

This is a reimagining of the scene where Anakin and Obi-Wan guard Padme from being assassinated. And also a deeper look into Anakin's development with the force, something I thought would be exciting to see.

"I don't sleep well anymore"

"Because of your mother?"

Anakin looks at the ground and gives off a sad impression

"I don't know why I keep dreaming of her, I haven't seen her since I was very little"

"Dreams pass in time"

"I much rather dream of Padme. Just being around her again is... intoxicating"

"Be mindful of your thoughts Anakin, they betray you if you let them consume you"

Anakin let out a sigh, as Obi-Wan continues with his lecture.

"You swore an oath to the Jedi order... an oath not so easily broken. And don't forget that she's a politician, they are not to be trusted"

Anakin swings around to face Obi-Wan in the face.

"She's not like other politician's Master, she doesn't truly care for political champagnes, or... other causes to fund a democracy"

Anakin retorts with a smile on his face.

Obi-Wan, leans in with suspicious eyes.

"And what does she care about Anakin?"

Anakin's smiled faded

"Anakin... I've been where you've been and it's not easy, I know..."

Obi-Wan pauses and thinks about his past for a second.

"But the things we sware when we take the oath of being a Jedi are all but half made promises"

Anakin's anger raised

"I know ok, just leave me alone."

Anakin stomps back inside the building

"You can't stop lecturing me for one night, even when we are back home on Coruscant"

"Anakin!"

Obi-Wan says in a angry yet calm voice, so not to disturb Padme.

"Forget it. You don't care about what I have to say"

Anakin says with his back to Obi-Wan.

(Cut to the Assassination droid realising bugs inside Padme's bedroom)

(Cut back to Obi-Wan standing with his arms crossed to a frustrated Anakin, whos staring out one of the windows)

(John William's Tales of a Jedi Knight/Learn About the Force score plays in)

"Anakin you are a padawan, you have yet to understand the ways the force can guide you"

"There just microscopic blood cells not future predictors"

"Insolent as always"

Anakin then cringed and then angrily shouted

"Qui Gon was a true master! And all you are is a padawan yourself"

Obi-wan is taken back from these harsh words but holds a sturdy look that only a master would

Anakin realizing what he had just said looks down in guilt

"I'm sorry Master. I truly am, I'm... I'm just so frustrated"

"I maybe took you on too early but..."

Anakin senses a trouble in the force coming from Padme's room

"Do you sense that?"

"I sense it too"

The Jedi abandon their banter and proceed with their duty

Yaas2.0: Interesting, sublime and very overwhelming with multiple thrills in its own very ways. Really invested. Once a story has the ability to make you feel it, it's a bam!

Ginger: I like the idea behind this; the idea and story itself are great, However, I'm finding typos periodically and some of the sentences could be worded a bit more clearly. You might want to 'show' a little more than you 'tell,'

Cliuin: A great fantasy story what follows a young half-race on his joourney.

Jay: Love the book and only read the first chapter. I'm hooked.

NancyRichFoster: This second book of the Anmah Series was as awesome as the first story, I disagree with spare runner. The names were ordinary names with different spellings, which I for one loved. I am now going to read the third book in this amazingly awesome story!

aoifecollopy22: I loved how the author had the conflict come back later in the story. Also how they passed time without going over anything. That really helped move the story along. This kept my up for a few hours. YOU SHOULD READ THIS

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story. I came back not expecting much, just to be drawn into the story and the characters. I would buy this book in real life, as long as another was promised shortly after.
